The 3 Cs

I enjoy learning new things that I can share to help others. Today I attended a training about addiction and how it is a family disease, and one of the things presented really spoke out to me:

I didn’t CAUSE it, 
I can’t CURE it, 
I can’t CONTROL it, 
but I can take CARE of myself
by COMMUNICATING feelings,
making healthy CHOICES,
and CELEBRATING myself.

These “7 Cs” are based on addiction, but can apply to so many situations that are out of our control.  They can help remind us all of why certain choices we make are necessary, and also reassure us that we are not responsible for and didn’t create this addiction/situation. We all need reminders from time to time, and I think this is a great daily reminder.
